Kettle Art opened in November of 2005 with the intent of reviving a neighborhood in decline. In bringing the Deep Ellum area ‘back to it’s roots’ the gallery also offered countless Texas based artists a place to show. With an ‘inclusive as opposed to exclusive’ attitude, uncommon in most galleries at the time, the overall mission has been achieved.

Kettle Art, in it’s present location, will be closing in late spring. We see this as a great opportunity for expansion of ideas and creativity to benefit our community.

Our concluding schedule at 2714 Elm is as follows:

February 9, 2013 – For the Love of Kettle – One night Only!
Opens February 16 – For the Love of Artists – Feb. 23, 2013
Opens March 7 – Derek Rankins The Part & the Whole (Thesis Show) – Mar. 23
Opens March 28 – Justin Terveen – April 13
Opens April 18 – Past Present & Future (a gallery retrospect) – May 4.

This can be seen as the end of an era but may also be viewed as a new beginning. News of our relocation will come once the dust has settled. Please rest assured this is a giant step forward.
